A number of studies show [1][2][3][4] that systems fail due to an inadequate or insufficient understanding of the requirements they seek to address. Further, the amount of effort needed to fix these systems has been found to be very high [5]. To correct this situation, it is necessary to address the issue of requirements elicitation, validation, and specification in a relatively more focussed manner. The expectation is that as a result of this, more acceptable systems will be developed in the future. The field of requirements engineering has emerged to meet this expectation.
